Morgan Breed Shines at World Equestrian Games

From the opening ceremonies to the popular breed demonstrations, the Morgan breed has been met with receptive and appreciative audiences at this year's World Equestrian Games (WEG). The Games, which started September 25 and ends October 10, is taking place at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington. This is the first time ever the Games have taken place in the United States.

Beginning with the opening ceremonies, Eitan Beth-Halachmy rode Santa Fe Renegade to a world audience. (Editor's Note: As has been previously reported, Eitan became ill following his performance, but is getting better each day. You can read more here,  

The Morgan breed demonstrations have been a huge hit, with audience numbers reaching 300-500 people at one time. Among the Morgan performers are
